You Deserve Better

“We should not give away a moment to anyone who does not deserve it.”

You Deserve Better

You think he can give you the world, even when he doesn’t call or blows you off for his friends for the fourth weekend in a row. You think when he does kind things for you, it balances out all of the other times you’ve been mistreated. You’re wrong. It’s hard to know that there is someone who can give you so much more when you’re trapped in this small box. You deserve someone who's just as in love with you as you are with him. That’s hard to see because you think the world of him right now.

The right man will make you want to be a better person. Ask yourself, "Does he make me want to be a better person?" You’re sitting, waiting for him to call, show up, take you out; you're waiting on him to be a better person for you, and you know it isn't right. You feel a pit in your stomach. You constantly worry about what he’s doing, who he’s with. The need to run. He's not the one.

You're not a second route or an option. You deserve to be someone’s first choice. You shouldn’t feel uncertainty about him or yourself. You should never have to question his dedication when he says he loves you. You deserve someone who holds true to his word. When he says he’ll be there, he's there. You have confidence in his words because they are backed up by his actions.

My ex repeatedly broke promises and didn’t prioritize me the same way I did him, and it left me with a broken heart. Do not compromise the morals you’ve had for years for someone who hasn't earned your trust. Don't crack under pressure trying to force him to be the one. Leave. Take it from someone who ignored that gut feeling. Run. He's not the one.

I hope you find happiness. I hope you don’t settle for anything less than you deserve. Have patience, because the right man will come along and you’ll know why it never worked out with anyone else.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
